Sensemaking / The Fibre Fusion and Blend Segregation Mobile Processor: a design concept to inspire new futures for fashion

Maximise the fibre resource in industrial-era clothing. Concept by Kakee Scott.

By Kakee Scott / 07 Nov 2016

This is one of eight rapid prototypes for the future of fast fashion to come out of a rapid design sprint led by Forum for the Future and Elliott P. Montgomery of the Parsons School of Design. Enjoy the description below, but remember, it is a design concept, not an actual product. Find out more about the design process here.

The Fibre Fusion and Blend Segregation Mobile Processor will help you and your atelier make the most of the incredible fiber resource in remaining stockpiles of used industrial-era clothing.

Are you frustrated by short fibres in reusable fabrics refusing to integrate when spinning new thread? This little machine binds even the shortest fibres together into strong and flexible extended fibres. Tired of wasting blends because of their warping, pilling, and loss of shape from wear and inappropriate laundering? You’ll be amazed that the Fiber Fusion and Blend Segregation Mobile Processor can break down blended textiles and isolate virgin fibers to be reintegrated into single-material threads. Combine both powerful functions to create enduring, high-quality restored fibre textiles.

A must-have tool for 2025's neighbourhood and household couturiers!

See and hear more about these artifacts at our Future of Fast Fashion event on November 1st in New York City.
